Healthy Start to Learning in the works

Parents, tots, service providers invited to LaFF Aggie event May 6

Plans are underway for the May 6 Ladysmith Family and Friends Healthy Start to Learning Event at Aggie Hall, and service and resource providers in the community are being invited to participate.

“This is an ideal opportunity to connect with families and provide information on all the wonderful services that are available to them,” said Jacqueline Neligan, LaFF executive director.

“It is also a great opportunity to Network with other local resources.”

Organizations are invited to join in on the event itself and to help with planning by joining the Healthy Start to Learning sub-committee. “Fresh ideas are always welcome,” Neligan said.

In the past about 150 people have participated in the annual event, including parents, children, grandparents and caregivers.

“Feedback is always overwhelmingly positive,” Neligan said. “The success of this event will be greatly enhanced with participation from as many resource providers as possible.”

Highlights of the event, which runs from 9:30 a.m. to noon, include a healthy lunch, refreshments, entertainment and activities.

“I would like to invite each resource provider to provide an interactive activity for families to participate at while they visit your display,” Neligan said. “If you would like, LaFF can provide you with an activity, please let me know ASAP.”
